“Goodrich High School is developing a student-led, LGBTQIA+ support group named Goodrich C.A.R.E.S. (Compassion, Awareness, Respect and Equality for Students). The program is designed to not only benefit the student members of this club, but also to benefit the student body as a whole by promoting awareness of this often-marginalized segment of the school population. With the implementation of this Gay Straight Alliance club at Goodrich High School, we sincerely hope that our student body becomes more aware and sensitive toward LQBTQIA+ youth and that those students who identify as LGBTQIA+ feel a sense of safety, purpose, love and belonging.”
